Why I Love This Recipe

In light of St. Patricks Day, I made some green tea cupcakes... not quite Irish, but green nonetheless. :) It was made with matcha, a powdered green tea.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons matcha


Beat butter on high until soft, about 30 seconds.

Add sugar. Beat on medium-high until light & fluffy (3 min.)

Add eggs/egg yolks one at a time

Beat for 30 secs between each egg/yolk.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.

Add to batter and mix to combine.

Mix matcha in with the milk.

Add to the batter and mix until combine.

Pour into prepared 1/2 sheet pan and smooth flat.

Bake for 22-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
